Chrysler recalls almost 470,000 Jeep SUVs

DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler is recalling 469,000 Jeep SUVs worldwide because they can shift into neutral without warning on startup.     

The recall affects 2005 to 2010 Grand Cherokees and 2006 to 2010 Commanders.     

U.S. safety regulators say cracks in a circuit board can cause a faulty signal as the SUVs are being started. If the vehicles shift into neutral they can roll away.     

Chrysler says the problem has caused 26 crashes and two injuries.     

Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will update software to take care of the problem. Chrysler found cracks in a circuit board that turns the four-wheel-drive system on and off.     

Repairs will be made at no cost.     

The recall covers 295,000 vehicles in the U.S., 28,500 in Canada, and 4,200 in Mexico. The remaining 141,000 are outside North America.

It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
